When is a user video scanned by Content ID to see if it matches any delivered reference material?
- As it is uploaded and at intervals later on
- Only when it is first uploaded and published
- When an ad is placed on the video
- After it has received more than 1000 views
In YouTube, the Content ID system compares reference file information with videos uploaded by other YouTube users. Note, that the content ID scans database not only when the video is being uploaded. In fact, it’s a never-ending process. Every time you claim a video and create a reference file for your asset, Youtube creates a “digital fingerprint” and periodically scans the system for potential matches.
When Content ID detects a match, it automatically claims the video and applies the policy specified.
So, When is a user video scanned by Content ID to see if it matches any delivered reference material? A correct answer is “As it is uploaded and at intervals later on”.
Tip: make sure you have exclusive rights to the content before creating a reference. Otherwise, you could risk a serious penalty or even account termination.
